At Smith & Mills in Tribeca, Grapefruit Brulee ($8) is a hot weather savior. It's an effortless dessert (on your part that is), as they've removed the grapefruit from the shell. Three evenly sized portions, each one gently caramelized to a golden brown. I love that crisp, crackly top and how it transforms grapefruit from health food to dessert with such ease. Pair with a scatter of lightly salted and roasted pumpkin seeds and a smear of lemon whipped mascarpone cream, all at once tangy and creamy. Indulgent and decidedly light, it's summer all the way at Smith & Mills.
